Rare antique to vintage French sterling silver & glass citrus juicer in thick shaped pressed glass with elegant hallmarked sterling silver handle ! We don't find these all that often! Yes, one can easily find an antique or vintage juicer but with French sterling silver, not really ;). This one in fabulous condition, too. Perfect for use of course but also great as an elegant old French decorative piece, placed within your fine service. A fabulous accessory for fish dinners, set the table with your finest and have this, half a lemon for a spritz of juice at meal time. The handle bears the post-1838 French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within that mark means it's in .950 silver (95% pure so higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). I don't see a silversmith mark, not uncommon on smaller pieces though it may be there and I've just missed it. Not having a silversmith makes it impossible for me to narrow down the maker or date of creation. A lovely piece, don't miss it. One of two, along with a huge offering of fine French silver, that we currently have available so be sure to browse some while youâre with us. Thanks!
Very good to excellent condition. No dents or damage to the sterling silver handle. No chips or cracks to the glass that See pictures for measurements.
